The Fly Fire broke out yesterday afternoon at approximately 5 p.m. and quickly consumed 1,600 acres. It has put the previously “thought-to-be-safe” entire Quincy area under an evacuation warning and closed Highway 70 west out of Quincy.
Reporter Victoria Metcalf toured the area with a CHP escort to see firsthand some of the devastation left behind. She saw the charred remains of the home near the site of where the fire is believed to have originated. Officially, the fire is under investigation, but this is believed to be an entirely new fire, and not a spot from the Dixie Fire.
